1 July 2004 In vivo T-scan-based polarization-sensitive OCT of the optic nerve
Author Affiliations +
We have constructed a compact set-up based on incoherent detection in two optical channels to provide real time polarisation sensitive OCT imaging. The system can display either a pair of two polarisation sensitive OCT images, corresponding to linear orthogonal polarisation directions or a pair of images, a polarisation insensitive (pure reflectivity) image and a birefringence retardation map. The images are collected by fast en-face scanning (T-scan) followed by slower scanning along a rectangular transverse direction and depth scanning. B-scan and C-scan images from in-vivo retina and optic nerve are presented.
